TCI: Hon. Akierra Missick welcomes teachers and students back to school

Published

#Providenciales, September 3, 2019 – Turks and Caicos – It is with great pleasure that I welcome teachers and students throughout our country back to another great school year.  I hope that your summer has been filled with fun family activities. This is always one of my favorite times of the year!  I love the excitement of beginning each new school year and eagerly await pictures posted on social outlets of everyone in new uniforms looking fresh to begin the new school year.

I know that there are challenges but keep focus on the task ahead. Teachers you play an important role in the lives of our youth. You are not only teachers but you sometimes play the role of doctors, judges and counselors. Be encouraged!

Students, I can not stress enough the importance of a good education. Listen, study hard and give your best. It is said that success follows a predictable course, a calculated sequence of choices; and it’s not the brightest people that automatically succeed. Great athletes, musicians and even computer experts all need both time and talent to reach the top echelon. In other words, practice isn’t the thing you do once you are good. It has to be nurtured as a habit.

I pray for much success, guidance and protection for all involved throughout this country this school year.

Hon. Akierra Missick
